Love's Embrace

I watch one love
I thought was true
walk into the arms
of yet another lover
leaving me with only pain
to recompose

and yet I see the world come alive
with springtime energy
and feel a gentle touch
of beauty start to soothe
the jagged, ragged pieces of my soul
for my heart, that once felt whole
has been shattered by the power
of yet another dose of love's denial

I wish upon a lost and lonely star
and I wonder why I'm left to cry alone
It feels as if a stone
or perhaps a piece of jaded granite
were weighing down my soul
that only wants to flow
in love's embrace

So I wish upon a star
yet once again
this wish born long ago
in innocence of heart
that I might find my one true love
and at last begin to make
these dreams come true . . .
